NO CD IN NOOK for PC VERSION!
I was disappointed that there is no CD in the Nook version AND Barnes&Noble doesn't tell you -- or at least I can't find that little tid bit of useful information. I would not have purchased this for the NOOK had I known there was no CD.

Inaccuracies and questionable referencing
I purchased the Exam Cram CISSP Second Edition a few months ago but have only just started reading through. Although I've only gotten about 30 pages in, I'm already dismayed by some of the questionable referencing and blatant inaccuracies in some of the example information.
In terms of questionable references, for instance, page 26 includes a wikipedia reference in discussing laptop theft. As virtually any college professor will say, wikipedia is an unreliable source at best. There is a reason most colleges do not allow wikipedia as a reference for term papers.
As for blatant inaccuracies, page 31 references the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire but states that the event occurred in 1991. The actual Triangle Shirtwaist fire happened in 1911. While this is an editorial mistake, such mistakes in a study/reference guide don't instill confidence in the overall quality of the material.
Please bear in mind that this review is based on only a few pages of the book so I cannot yet offer a complete review. That being said, I'd be wary of purchasing this one.
